Downloading the correct version for install?


I have tried everything I can think of...and still not working. Even trying the suggestions, so will start at square one.

I am downloading from the following site.

http://www.mandriva.com/en/download/mandrivaone

Selecting the 'mandriva-one-2007-free-gnome.iso' link. Once done I burn it to a cd using Nero as a boot cd. However I keep getting the german or dutch version of language.

What I want to do is install as if no OS is present at all. Need to completely wipe the current XP the person has, and install something that virus proof for a typical 16 yr old kid.

Can I do this with this version? In english as a boot able CD? Oh...and one more thing. Do I need a floppy drive as well? The computer has no 3.5 diskette.

I have the option set to english. The problem really starts after Caldera runs. I get the [DR-DOS]a:\ prompt, and nothing else. When I do a dir, I get a list of files, one of them being wwbmu exe. When it's run, that is in german, or maybe dutch. I am lot from this point. I downloaded the file many times, and this time I did not extract the files from the WinRar file. Incase that was the problem. Same results as if I had extracted.

I have changed from make a boot able cd, to burn image, and will see if that works.

Thanks for the info so far.

Where linux users come for help

This is the second time I remind you "flanksteak" of what this site is about. Why do you tell people in need to look elsewhere before coming here?
Is this your personal site, do you make the rules around here?. Are you in charge?.

Junior Hacker I was only making a suggestion because before I found linux questions I googled on every question I had and actually learned quite a lot. Ido not like being told off.

I am glad I could help you Sutor
